       Marco - The MATE Window Manager


       marco [OPTIONS]


       Marco  is a minimal X window manager that uses GTK+ for drawing window frames. It is aimed
       at non-technical users and is designed to integrate well with the MATE desktop. Marco is a
       plain window manager for the adult in you; Many window managers are like Marshmallow Froot
       Loops, Marco is like Cheerios. It lacks some features that may be expected by  traditional
       UNIX  or other technical users; these users may want to investigate other available window
       managers for use with MATE or as a standalone window manager.

       Marco supports several somewhat advanced but common features such as Window  Shading/Roll-
       Up,  Window/Edge  Snapping,  Vertical and Horizontal Maximize, Always-On-Top, Sloppy/Mouse
       Focus and Raising, and many more... Well, not a lot, but some more.

       This manual page documents the marco command.


       -d, --display=DISPLAY
              X display to use.

              Make X calls synchronous.

              Replace the currently running window manager with Marco.

              Disable the connection to the session manager.

              Specify a session management ID.

              Restore from a session management savefile.
              If no path is specified marco will look in ~/.config/mate-session/saved-session/

       -c, --composite
              Turn compositing ON. You may also use this option to  start  marco  with  composite
              "true transparency" effects.

              Turn  compositing  OFF.  You  may  also  use  this  option  to  start marco without
              compositing effects.

              Do not create fullscreen windows without decorations.

              Print current version information and exit.

       -?, -h, --help
              Print standard command line options.


       Marco   configuration   can   be    found    via    the    main    MATE    menus,    under
       "System->Preferences->Windows" and "System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts" or by running
       the commands mate-window-properties and mate-keybinding-properties respectively.  Advanced
       configuration can also be achieved directly, via dconf-editor under "/org/mate/marco/".
